    Hi I am the beginner, May I have the shortcode for the Facebook like box plugin. It works in sidebar, but I want to place it in header or footer. Please Help me…
    Thanks & Regards,

  • Prem Tiwari

    Hi Amirtharaj,

    If you are using the twentyeleven theme then Add the Facebook Like Box widgets in Footer Area One and use the bellow code in any where in your current theme like header or footer area.

    < ?php dynamic_sidebar( 'Footer Area One' ); ?>
    < ?php dynamic_sidebar( 'Add your widgets area name' ); ?>

    I wonder if you could help me. I have never come across this problem before.
    When I installed your Facebook ( and actually the the same Facebook Like Box from Web developers through Google) plugin on my WP website, it only works when I am personally logged in to my Facebook main account.
    The widget disappears from my website in all browsers (IE and Firefox) as soon as I log out of my Facebook.
    I have also checked it on another computer (IE), same effect – nothing.
    Could you possibly suggest what am I doing wrong and how can I solve this problem?
    Many thanks,


  • Hello Nadine,

    Give me your website url.

  • Prem Tiwari

    as you told you are using the another plugin for same firstly deactivate that plugin and then install this plugin.

    • Nadine

      Hello again,

      Thank you for your advice. Unfortunately the problem stays. I have completely deleted all previously installed “Facebook like boxes” and re-uploaded yours from my PC.

      Unfortunately, it only works when I am personally logged into Facebook. I have also asked my husband to check this from his computer. The result is the same: when he is logged to his Facebook account, the Facebook Like box became active and he could see the my Facebook page there.

      I really don’t know what to do. Did anybody else experience the same problem? Could you please suggest anything else to solve it?
      Did it work for you when you checked my website? Do you know anybody who can help with this problem?

      Many thanks in advance,

      Best wishes,

        I’ve been had the same problem… The plug-in just works when I am logged into my Facebook acount.

        Did you discover a solution for this problem?

  • Kay

    Hi, really like the plug-in except since I don’t want a title, I’m stuck with what I’m guessing is the bullet. I can’t seem to figure out how to edit the CSS for this. I tried inline – didn’t work. I tried adding this to my default.css file – didn’t work.

    facebook-widget {


  • Hi Kay,

    Open your style.css page and add this code in line number 443.

    ul {
    margin-left: 20px;
    padding: 0
    list-style: none;

  • Tim

    I like your Facebook like box. Can I somehow add the code to my posts so the FB like box shows next to posts content?

    Thanks Tim

  • susan

    Thank you for this plugin. Is it possible to remove the thumbnail, the title and the company name and just have the facebook button?

    • chiqio

      THANK YOU!!!!

  • Mark

    Hi Prem,
